You certainly can.
The camera plugin (I use WebCamPlugin version 2.12) runs in a separate window and has cross hairs in the center.
All you need to do is centre the start point in the camera view by jogging the mill and the either note down the DRO numbers or zero them. Then jog the mill to the next point and read the DRO's.
You get the X and Y distance. If you want the straight line distance when X and Y both change then you just need to use Pythagoras triangle theory to calculate that distance.

The closer the camera is to the surface the better accuracy you will get.

Well, so I'm late to this party.  Found this topic a week ago and was thrilled that Tweakie.CNC has shared this webcam feature.  I gathered up a USB endoscope, Tweakie's button macros and K.Dietz's webcam driver but was wondering whether in the years that have passed if there is now a more preferred webcam driver available.

Thanks

Klaus was working on a new version last time I looked, perhaps check out his website http://www.kd-dietz.com/klausphp/pages/ger/plugins/webcam/description/wcam_description.html

Thanks Tweakie.  Been there and have his latest greatest, so I guess I have the most current.
